The LaunchLabs is the Leatherby Center’s student and alumni incubator/accelerator program. This dedicated space is for Entrepreneur Teams to receive mentorship and accelerate their success.

We help Entrepreneurs by providing a number of resources and events in the Launch Labs Facility. Launch Labs is designed for intense 24/7 entrepreneurship. At the LaunchLabs facility we have conference rooms with whiteboards and flatscreens, private and shared office space, open collaboration space and tons of lounge chairs to rejuvenate!

Apply for the Leatherby Center Student Incubator

Turn your business idea into a reality! At the start of each semester and the summer session we accept applications to be considered for the LaunchLabs program. This will open up the opportunity to have access to resources, mentors, office space and professional guidance from an extensive network of successful entrepreneurs.  The LaunchLabs will provide the necessary tools to propel student and alumni teams towards their goals and aspirations.

We recommend that student entrepreneurs have taken at least one entrepreneurship class prior to applying to the LaunchLabs incubator. For information on classes please visit our Entrepreneur Classes page.
